Did you know that you can keep the eggs in the freezer? What do you do when you can’t find your piping bag? How do you make perfectly breaded chicken nuggets? For everyday kitchen problems, here are some smart cooking strategies you can apply:

  • Yes, you can actually keep whole eggs in the freezer to preserve them. Mix the yolks and the whites by beating with a fork (do not whip in air), then add 1½ teaspoons of sugar or ½ teaspoon of salt per cup of whole eggs. Put the eggs in a freezer bag, leave headspace, close the bag tight, then freeze. Use the write-on strip on the bag to identify the quantity of eggs and the amount of salt or sugar to guide you in the recipes.

  • To make evenly-coated chicken nuggets or fried chicken, put the breading in zipper storage bag, place the chicken slices inside. Shake until the parts are uniformly breaded. Then carefully drop the pieces in a pan and deep fry until they’re golden brown and crispy.

  • When you’re baking and you suddenly realize you don’t have a piping bag, don’t panic! Use bake paper as an alternative. All you have to do is form a sheet of bake paper into a tight cone and then fill with cookie dough, icing or other filling. Then nip off the tip of the cone and you’re ready to form the dough into the desired shapes.

  • Now you have solved the piping bag problem, what do you do when you’re rolling pin goes AWOL? Here’s a nifty tip: properly wash your “long neck” wine bottle and this can be double as rolling pin. Use a bake paper in between dough while rolling and kneading to prevent sticking.

  • If your recipe calls for chopped nuts, you can do it mess-free and simply. Put the dry peanuts, almond and pecan inside storage zipper bag and make sure to take out as much air while leaving a small vent when you seal the bag. Then use a rolling pin (or a “long neck” wine bottle) to chop (or crush) the nuts in the prescribe size.

  • Unbaked cookie dough can be frozen. Form the dough into desired shape, place dough in a zipper freezer bag, interleave each layer with aluminum foil to prevent sticking, and freeze in the coldest part of the freezer.

  • If you want to maintain the freshness of your baked goodies, keep them locked inside zipper storage bags. Make sure that you cool your pre-baked cookies completely before you put them in a bag. Take care to remove as much air from the package when you seal it because the quality of the goods is compromised when excess air is left in the bag.
